Star Wars: The Force Awakens.



Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
By Daniel Shultz

            I’m a Star Trek kind of person. I make no claim to being a rabid Star Wars fanatic, I didn’t see the films as a young child, there was no life altering viewing, I wasn’t forever changed by seeing Vader tell Luke he was his father, (as that was common knowledge within pop culture at the time) and I didn’t get crazy excited to see any of the prequels. I did see the prequels, the last one in the theatre even. But even as a high school student I recognized that day sitting in that theatre on opening weekend (for a friend’s birthday) that the writing was terrible and the story dumb.

Ender's Game

Ender’s Game: A Review.

By Daniel Shultz

            It is not often that a book comes along that feels like it drags you out of bed and shoves your head straight into the toilet. I mean that in a good way. Perhaps a different analogy would work better. It is not often that a book comes along that feels like it takes you and throws you naked into a snowstorm. What I mean to say is that this book is a brutal wake up call to what the world of fiction can achieve when theme and story come together.
